    Aunt Laurie & Phil,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of Uncle Pete. He was a hero to my brother and I from the time we met him; with his corvette, his fervent play-by-play descriptions of his hockey games and of course the times when he would lace-up the boxing gloves (socker boppers) and teach us the fundamentals of the sport. I’m thankful that he shared his love of golf with me. Phil I’m sorry that it came at the cost of your Dad dropping a chip shot on your head one afternoon in your backyard. I pray that he’s playing a round in heaven with Hogan, Snead and Jones. Rest in peace Uncle Pete.

    My Uncle Pete worked for the airlines, played golf, and umpired baseball for most of his life. His career and hobbies introduced him to a lot of interesting people, which he loved to tell us stories about. Although the details are fuzzy from one story I remember hearing when I was a kid, the punchline will never be forgotten.

    The story includes two characters, one of which said to the other, “Go ahead!” To which the other replied, “Who are you calling a Goat Head?!!” We must have said “Go ahead” a lot to each other, because Uncle Pete seemed to find a way to fit in “Who are you calling a Goat Head?!” on a regular basis. Maybe we said it to get a laugh out of him, or he said it to get a laugh out of us.

    My brothers and I recently got to visit my aunt, uncle, cousin, and his new wife at my cousin’s wedding. It had been over 20 years since we had all been together. Over those years there had been marriages and divorces, births and deaths, sorrow and celebration. Where do you begin to answer the question, “How have you been?” It was sometime between reliving old memories with family and mingling with new acquaintances at the reception that I heard the familiar call, “Who are you calling a Goat Head?!” I can only imagine that an unsuspecting guest had politely offered for Uncle Pete to get a plate or a drink by saying “Go ahead!” He couldn’t resist!

    Every family has stories and memories that when told bind them all back together again no matter the distance or time apart, but do they have a Goat Head?

    Thanks for the great story telling, Uncle Pete! . You and your stories will live on with us!

    Love,
    Kimberly

    Laurie and Philip... we are saddened by your loss. Always had fun at Delta with Pete....when we worked downtown DTW in the Book Bldg, he would get mad at Frannie Reese and I when we sat together and maybe talked too much? He would split us up one on one side of the room and the other on the other side. Can still hear him!
    Love to you and your family...
